In a surprising announcement today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has revealed that Scribblenauts Showdown, a new video game based on the franchise that originally debuted in 2011, will be releasing for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One on March 9. This time around, the game will include a party game mode for 1-4 players.
According to Warner Bros., Scribblenauts Showdown will include a new “Showdown” mode, in which up to four players will face off and imagine their way to victory through “card-based strategy and creative skill.” The game will include various mini-games that players can compete in, including action-oriented “speedy” mini-games that reward players who complete a challenge first, and a versus mode that allows two players to go head-to-head. There will also be a single player mode that allows players to play the mini-games alone.

Sandbox mode, the Scribblenauts™ series’ cherished creative playground, allows one or two players to solve objectives in eight new levels by summoning any object they can imagine and earn hidden Starites and achievements. Players can also let their imaginations run wild by unleashing whatever objects they can think of and watching them interact in unexpected ways.
Adding to the family fun, players can either choose, or design, their own original Scribblenaut™ to represent them throughout the game, all drawn in the classic Scribblenauts™ art style. The Scribblenaut™ can be further customised with unique clothing and quirky accessories by earning Starites and completing achievements.
Scribblenauts Showdown is set to launch on March 9.
